The Cydle M7 MID is so much more than meets the eye

SlashGear originally tipped the Cydle M7 just before Christmas, but we really didn’t see the intricacies and application of the M7 until we saw it at CES. Now the Cydle M7 is shaping up to be one of the more interesting products to emerge from this year’s trade show.

The Cydle M7 is a MID (although we’re still trying to find out specs on how the “I” part fits in) with a 7-inch resistive touchscreen, an ARM11 800MHz processor, HDMI and 8GB of internal storage (expandable to 16GB) that runs an Android OS. It also has a ATSC digital Mobile TV tuner that allows turns the M7 into a TV. It does all the typical MID things (like play videos, music and display images) and can be used as a digital picture frame.

Along with all that you can use the M7 as an additional monitor through its USB connection in either vertical or horizontal layout. The cover slides off the face of the tablet and converts into a stand for both orientations as well. This is one well thought out device (as you can see in the Engadget hands-on video after the break). And we saved the best news for last. Cydle will be selling the M7 for an affordable $199 in Q2 of this year. Yay!
